You use a very myopic definition of photographer. One could also say, if you used a digital camera with auto focus and auto exposure, you are not a real photographer or if you didn't coat your own glass plate with silver halide and expose it to mercury vapor, you are not a real photographer. By your definition, every sports, nature, event, paparazzi, wedding photographers are already not photographers because they current use rapid fire to get the shot. For me it's just a new tool in the tool chest. If it helps me get the image I'm looking for, I'm all for it. A photographer to me is anyone who captures an image whether it be still, video, cell phone, or a frame from a stream of frames.
That's absolutely NOT correct in anyway shape or form. I NEVER said that using the tech available is a bad thing. But lets not confuse photography with video editing.
You are entitled to your opinion as am I. But video and Photography are two different things.
